QMST Direction is actively participating in various education initiatives at Skoltech.

**MSc Education Program "Photonics and Quantum Materials"**

**MSc Education Program "Photonics and Quantum Materials"**

In collaboration with other CPQM faculty, our Direction is responsible for the MSc Education Program in Photonics and Quantum Materials (PQM). The PQM program combines a significant number of basic scientific courses with numerous application-oriented disciplines. The aim of the program is to provide knowledge and lab expertise in photonics, condensed matter, quantum physics, nano-electronics and bio-photonics, as well as to prepare students to apply fundamental science and engineering approaches to higher-level research and industrial tasks. The curriculum covers the main topics in optics and condensed matter physics. The PQM program is implemented in a network form with the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Educational Program "Quantum Nanostructures, Materials and Devices" responsible for courses in physics of quantum nano-structures, materials and devices, and Chair "Nano-optics and Spectroscopy", responsible for courses in spectroscopy and quantum optics).
